Great playground for kids of all ages then go to the free animal enclosure. Native wildlife at close range plus the free farmyard animals to visit. Best free day out for families. Great place for international visitors to see native wildlife.

Really impressed with this public park. Great playground with water play, flying foxes and big slides. Well shaded and spread out. A fantastic animal enclosure with wallabies, kangaroos, dingo, wombat etc., all free to the public and very well maintained. Well done Ipswich City Council
